On February 28, 2016, Donald Trump posted this statement on Twitter... “It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep.”

The quote was from Benito Mussolini, the founder of the fascist movement, a lifelong bully, the architect of an end-to-end police state, the self-anointed dictator who disabled opposing political parties and every last constitutional check and balance so he could rule with impunity, a total, absolute and relentless self-promoter and a master of propaganda, a barbarian who favored torture, concentration camps and poison gas, a terribly ignorant commander in chief and yet a man who stuck his chin out as if it were made of steel.

On being questioned about his use of the Mussolini quote, Trump said, "What difference does it make if it was Mussolini or somebody else — it’s a very good quote.”

Best of luck, America.
